Hi everyone. There's me all pleased not to be paying charges for some Silver rounds from Canada, shipped out of U.S. And I get an USPS. email - "payment of charges - item held, addressee being notified" 🙄🙄🙄. Your item could not be delivered in U. K. due to payment of charges'
Now I know there are a lot of scams around, especially this type. But I know this genuine as I've been tracking it all the way to U. K. Now I'm waiting on contact.. Anyone been here before? 🤔

Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad Oh boy ... you could just pay it and it will continue. Or deal with a headache ... I know UPS , Fed Ex and others are being a pain in the back side atm.

This is a fight that is going to push you to your limits sadly.

I really hope it is resolved and you get your items

Oooh you are ok then... Sorry I thought for a moment it was UPS. in which case good luck.

You will have that delivered quickly most likely after paying for it.

Mission accomplished 😁👌 Worthwhile in the end although the photos doesn't do justice to this lovely series 'Dance' by the great Czech artist and illustrator Alphonse Mucha 👌"" Payment of charges - item held""  Img_2012

I do like them ALOT!!! They look very nice and yes the £14 or what ever it is now handling fee is annoying, you still got your items safely.
I often order from America on a regular basis. And I have one or two people send packages to me and others. We have a system of shipping both ways.. Infact I have to ship a package out to someone who is shipping a package to me and Fortune 8. We do try to look after each other, so he is going to get a few goodies in his package as I know I will get a few in mine.
Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Ouch!  Nice coins though, do you have any friends in America you could trust? You may be able to organise something for your mutual benefit?
At least you got your coins without any hassle, just cost you more.
Thanks for sharing your experience.  flower

I have a similar set from the same mint, but mine are designed by "Amy Brown", and portray different fantasy "Fairies"
They are all engraved on the edge with the matching CoA number of each round.

They are much nicer in hand than looking at photo's

Ah yes😁👌 @Fortune8 I like them alot... Love that imagery. That's a beautiful series and I know what you mean about 'better in the hand'. When were they released?
Sadly no friends in U.S. or Canada.... Well I had one. But he's not in office now and anyway he kept getting in trouble... Thinking about it now, I don't really think I liked him.🤔.. 😁👍

Very nice, unusual to have a set of 5 though.
This is the reverse on my set, no year on them!

There is a sixth Mucha round: 'Job'. It might not be part of the 'Dance' series though.

Thanks @The Cat's Mother 😁. Yes 'Job'. I couldn't get it.. The Pheli Mint was restocked with just the 5 coins.. If you ever see it, or anyone please let me know.
If your The Cat's Mother then I could be The Cats dad - I've been feeding cats since the 1950's.. Stays and waifs seem to find me... Human ones too... 😁👌
